October 17, 20118 (JUBA) - President Salva Kiir has urged the South Sudan police service to be prepared to receive the combatants of the oppositions groups who would join them with the disarmament and integration process in line with the peace pact.

On Wednesday, President Kiir addressed the police officials in a meeting held at Freedom Hall in Juba with the framework of a peace sensitization campaign to create a conducive environment for the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement.

He ordered the officers to promote the culture of peace and tolerance among their forces and to deal with an esprit of peace and tolerance with the fighters of the opposition groups when they regain the country with the security arrangement framework.

During his speech, the President Salva Kiir Mayardit instructed the police forces officers and other regular forces to cultivate the spirit of tolerance and peace with members of the opposition forces upon arrival in Juba as brothers and sisters in the same homeland

"The police and regular forces leaders be at the forefront of the peace process in the country," said President Kiir.

The peace partners agreed to create a conducive environment in the country and to build trust among the armed forces from both sides as they will be unified during the transitional period.

The meeting was attended by the Minister of Interior Michael Chiengjiek, Minister for National Security Isaac Obute Mamur, Information Minister Michael Makuei, Minister for Wildlife Conservation and Tourism Jemma Nunu Kumba, and Presidential advisor on Security Affairs Tut Gatluak who also chaired the government negotiating team.

In line with the peace deal the Disarmament, Demobilization and Re-Integration Commission shall be reconstituted within 30 days following the signing of the revitalized agreement.

Information Minister and leading member of the government negotiating team Michael Makuei briefed the meeting about the peace process and the efforts done by the government to reach it.

He emphasized that the government had to pay a high price to achieve pointing that President Salva Kiir accepted the appointment of five vice-presidents before to conclude the pact. He further the regular forces have to contribute in the process through tolerance and reconciliation with opposition members.

The minister also said the organized forces should be well trained and prepared for the transitional period and the electoral process which will intervene by the end of the peace deal implementation.

        "Kiir instructs South Sudan police to welcome former rebels"
        "Most of our Nuers ke nyantoc, Shilluks and some of our Equatorians low lives" who are *desperately yearning* to be welcomed back again to our country & to our people* again. Good luck to our foreign puppets/stooges, traitors & losers like Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol, Pagan Amuom, Thomas Cirillo, Adwok Nyabe, Rebecca Nyandeng>>>>

      Yah manh Aguec, you should instead instruct the army and police to carry out disarmament process in all the ten former states. This issue of unknown gunmen will still derailed peace if there no disarmament of all the civilians.

        Rumbek S. Sudan,

        I know you concern about your former state, Lake with guns in everyone hand and people are killing each other for no reason. These are the symptoms of any civil war. They will not go away forever. In Nigeria, Igbo people who fought Baifra war in 1960s are still suffering from that even though war ended in 1960s.

    Bravo Mr President Salva Kiir, right message at the right time! This precise moment should be observed with respect to peace, by saying such, all organize forces whether is from opposition or former armies, all should lead by example of peace. Let’s put our citizens’ well-being first and foremost.

      Why do you people used bravo in an empty statement? Salva Kiir deserved to go home. Imagine what is going on in greater Lakes yet, no action has been taken by both governors of Eastern and Western Lakes. Now he has sacked governor of Terekeka state for the same reason. Salva Kiir! manh aguec, you will still meet Rumbek people when elections comes.

    While this hoodlum called Kiir is urging his police to embrace the IO, Riek Machar is busy distributing money to his fellow tribesmen the Nuers excluding Equatorians, Dinkas and WBGS. Shame on you Riek. Which reforms are u calling for if you are behaving like Kiir.

      Riek Machar was given $300,000 by president Bashir to help improve the conditions of his top leaders. Riek decided to give the money only to Nuers excluding non Nuers. Only Nuers from unity state are the beneficiary.
      This is really . The office manager Simon Bangom handled the money.

        Whortti Bor Manza,
        This is a very interesting piece of reality, sugarcoated it as a comment doesn’t help here, it should be a precise report directly to the news houses. Let Riek distribute all such monies to Nuers, if it will help bring peace.
